Ghanaians Can’t Be Refugees
The Central Regional Police Commander, DCOP Ransford Moses Ninson has indicated that the security agencies would not allow political parties to destroy the peace of the country.
According to him, Ghanaians are not ready for a refugee status in other countries and would never be ready for it at any point in time.
He pointed out that it would be difficult for Ghanaians to communicate properly with their neighbours when they become refugees, as Ghana is surrounded by French speaking countries.
DCOP Ninson stated this when he had a meeting with the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the National Democratic Congress (NDC) executives and the media on the impending Supreme Court verdict at Cape Coast in the Central Region on Tuesday.
He said since it is the NPP and NDC that are involved in the Supreme Court processes, it behoves the leadership to talk to their foot soldiers and supporters not to get involved in any form of violence or demonstration after the judgment.
“Ghana is a beacon of peace in the West African sub-region and in Africa in general and for that matter we would not want the situations that had taken place in other countries to occur in Ghana,” he said.
The regional commander assured the public that the Police Service is poised and fully prepared to maintain law and order after the verdict of the Supreme Court.
“Nobody or group of persons should tempt us since such attempts would be met with appropriate force and would face the full rigours of the law,” he added.
DCOP Ninson charged journalists to be professional and circumspect in their reportage in order not to inflame passions after the verdict.
